A funny thing happened last week as teams headed into their games. Most teams set up their schedules so they could get settled into their offensive, defensive special teams systems, and finalize their player rotations against teams that are not up to their level (most describe them as cupcake games).
Well Wisconsin and Arkansas found out they took these games too casually and lost any chance at a title game or even a BCS game.
Wisconsin, which last year was a scoring machine, failed to put points on the scoreboard in Corvallis, OR and lost to Oregon State 10-7. Heisman hopeful RB Montee Ball, who had his touchdown scoring streak stopped at 21 games, has not looked like he did last year, which could lead to the thinking that the off-season attack on campus could be more of an issue than first thought.
As upsetting as Wisconsin loss was, the real shocker of the weekend was in Little Rock as AP #8 Arkansas Razorbacks lost in OT to the University of Louisiana – Monroe (ULM) ...

Noted opera singer Rebecca Davis took a swing at USC’s fight song. This could be just what they need to inspire them past Stanford.

Stanford is the only Pac-12 team USC quarterback Matt Barkley hasn’t beaten, but the USC Trojans football team plans to change that this weekend when they take on the Cardinal in Palo Alto.
Last season, #20 USC took on Andrew Luck and #6 Stanford at the Coliseum, losing 56-48 in triple overtime, in the highest-scoring game in Trojans’ history.
This year, the roles are...
Seventy-two-year-old CBS sportscaster Verne Lundquist may have dropped an F-bomb during the network’s broadcast of the Alabama vs. Arkansas game. Lundquist was live on the air chatting with broadcast partner Gary Danielson early in the fourth quarter during Alabama’s 52-0 romp over the Arkansas Razorbacks. It was such a dominating win for the Crimson Tide that Danielson and...
LOS ANGELES -- His name isn't Matt Barkley, Robert Woods, or Marqise Lee, but he may be called on to touch the ball on every single play for No. 2 USC (2-0) in their conference opener at No. 21 Stanford (2-0) on Saturday.
He is redshirt freshman offensive lineman Cyrus Hobbi.
USC center Khaled Holmes was carted off of the field at MetLife Stadium in the Trojans win against...
I’ve never been a Lane Kiffin fan, and I’m hardly alone. Kiffin comes across as an arrogant punk, and frankly he’s done little as a head coach to inspire much confidence. He’s been a good recruiter at USC, but I wasn’t surprised to see USC lay another egg against Stanford last night.
Yeah, it’s over.
The idea of a perfect Trojans season. The idea of an easy Matt Barkley...
Are we REALLY surprised that USC loss to Stanford?!I mean, come on!Now I may be biased, being that I was born and raised in the South. If you think so that's fine, but USC should've never had a pre-season ranking of No. 1. It just should not have happened.It was a true "slap in the face" to both Alabama and LSU. I understand that Lane Kiffen (Head Coach), Max Nikias...
If USC is Superman, Stanford is their kryptonite as the Cardinal downed the Trojans 21-14. The win marked Stanford’s fourth straight victory over their Southern California rivals who looked very mediocre all night long. The Trojans managed just 27 yards rushing on 23 attempts and allowed the Stanford defense to sack QB Matt Barkley five times including twice in USC’s final drives.
After enjoying a solid two-year career at Eastern Arizona and earning JC All-American honors last season, CB Travell Dixon decided to sign with the defending national champs -- Alabama. However, when he got there this spring, something just wasn't right and he opted to leave. Dawgman.com has been able to confirm that he will enroll at Washington and play in 2013 after sitting...
